I agree on $datadir/ncat/scripts for the installation directory.

I don't think we should put everything that is in the ncat/scripts
directory in the source code there. Some of them are demos that are
better worked into documentation. Some of them are trivial and not
likely to be ever used.

I believe that echo.lua, discard.lua and echo.lua could be useful as
